Leveraging Orientation Tech to Innovate Beyond Expectations

February 24 | 1:00 PM EST | An ACPA Professional Development Event

Leveraging Orientation Tech to Innovate Beyond Expectations


in cooperation with ACPA


At Georgia State University, new student orientation had two needs: to enhance the in-person program across six campuses to support enrollment and simultaneously provide an experience that combined in-person and virtual elements. 

To move orientation content to a digital environment, improve accessibility, and better serve exceedingly diverse audiences, Georgia State University created a comprehensive strategy to provide onboarding support from admission to orientation and ultimately enrollment. Powered by Advantage Design Group®, the new orientation platform enables a seamless and personalized onboarding experience for all members of the Panther Family. As a result, Georgia State experienced decreased orientation melt and no-show rates.

Contrary to some enrollment trends, in one season Georgia State

  • Welcomed over 25K new students, families, and staff through online orientation
  • Decreased No-Show Rates by over 10% during a global pandemic
  • Enrolled the largest freshman class in University history

Attend this webinar to learn from Benjamin Williams, Assistant Director, and Destiny Hand, Coordinator of New Student Orientation. The presentation will include a discussion, platform tour, and answers to chat questions.
